Hargreaves chief operating officer leaves after eight months
Online stockbroker, which only this week appointed new finance boss, loses chief operating officer who joined last June.
Hargreaves Lansdown’s (HRGV) chief operating officer has left the company just eight months after joining.
Vikki Williams joined Hargreaves Lansdown from Barclays at the start of June 2015.
She succeeded Nigel Bence as the online stockbroker's chief operating officer when he retired.
As part of the role she sat on the board of a number of the company’s subsidiaries, including Hargreaves Lansdown Asset Management which runs the company’s Vantage platform.
Hargreaves has not yet appointed a successor to Williams.
A spokesman for Hargreaves Lansdown said Williams left the business for ‘personal reasons’ and confirmed she left the company this month.
She is the second person to leave the board of Hargreaves Lansdown Asset Management in six months.
Last October Nick Marson, who was director of Vantage and broking operations, also left the company as part of a management reshuffle.
Hargreaves Lansdown has only just appointed Chris Hill as its new chief financial officer, replacing Tracey Taylor, who left last year.
